...as, within 75 miles of here, there was snow in the mountains plus hail, flash floods, mudslides and a tornado in the desert that overturned a truck and derailed four or five train cars. Some stretches of freeway were temporarily closed due to weather conditions.
Here? Sunny all day, with occasional clouds and plenty of humidity. No rain, no thunderstorms, no nothin'.
More of the same is forecast for tomorrow.
All I knew until the reports of weird weather started coming in was that the air felt distinctly odd, in a way I've felt prior to heavy weather in the Midwest. Vaguely disturbing, that, as if something catastrophic was on its way.
Nothing that bad happened, but nothing good came along either.
Tomorrow morning involves another doctor visit. I can hardly wait. I'm not totally convinced any solution to the back pain will come of it, but that's what I need, especially since I learned another couple of trips to Catalina Island are in the offing.
What I don't need is pain meds; the last time I got an Rx for them, they damn near made me try to twist my head off to see if I'd be happier without it.
Since I'm already feeling that way, I'm not in favor of making it worse if I can avoid it.
Morphine. That's the ticket. Or a pair of warm female hands rubbing the aches out of my unhappy muscles.
I sure as hell couldn't outrun a tornado right now.
